So, I have become interested in the Stringdusters after hearing Andy Hall play with other bands (Cheese, Emmitt-Nershi).
And so, per usual, I started with an archive.org search and picked from the most favorably rated shows (and seeing as how I have been yearning for Strummit after going to this year's SCI @ HH extravaganza, this one seemed obvious).
The sound and playing are outstanding. Haven't heard any other recordings but I am inclined to believe that this is a quintessential Stringdusters show. The ratings don't lie, it rips. I love these guys!
What a great set and even better job of taping! Going to Ashville to see them play for YMSB next month and it should be epic!

This show is just tits, they crank it up to 11 lol. This show introduced me to ISD, and Im goin to see them this Saturday in Atlanta with Yonder Mountain. Cant wait. Thanks to the tapers for contributing to my enlightenment!

ISD at their best!
This is a great benchmark in the band's history. I can only hope they can regroup and return to meet (or exceed) the high expectations that were built on performances such as this one.

High on the Mountain Top
It was a perfect day in a beautiful venue full of the worlds finest bluegrass players. Truly delightful and appreciative audience too. The boys - they are very young dudes - showed the old guard (Del, etc.) that a new generation is ready (and deserving) to share/carry the BG mantle. The 'Dusters not only jammed the grass as an organic unit, but fit snugly into a variety of band configurations and line-ups. I'm praying YMSB invites them back to Bob Horning's for the 2010 String Summit.
Thank you for uploading this sweet, sweet show - the wonderful vibe of the festival really shines through.
This is a fantastic show/recording. I've been listening to it over and over!
This version of Deep Elem Blues is awesome too!
A must download!

Well Well destroys!!!!
Fantastic show- A+++ sound quality and the playing is inspired throughout. I had to write this after the phenomenal jam in "Well Well." Andy Falco shreds the jam section so perfectly I am the first person to have a nocturnal emission while awake!

Outrageous Show / Spectacular Recording
Oh boy!...much to be said about this show...it's too good to be true!...there is not one weak spot (as usual) and the recording is ONE OF THE BEST I'VE EVER HEARD!!!
You Can't Handle The Truth - IMHO is a modern day version of "Pig In A Pen" (instrumentally that is), and is one kick@$$ version.
Well, Well, In God's Country, High On A Mountain Top etc., well...all I can say is listen to 'em... an try and tell me they're not incredible...I think not...not that I'm biased or anything.

These guys are pros. Their sound is great, their originals are well-written and their selection of covers is excellent.
This show is VERY well recorded and sounds great. Highly recommended for bluegrass fans.
